Well, I've been running a K&P reusable oil filter in my Harley for over 10 years and I love it. I've been slowly completing the conversion to K&P oil filters on all of my other vehicles. Car, diesel truck, Roadtrek camper van and my Formula boat, in addition to the Harley. Super high quality construction and I love the ease of being able to thoroughly inspect the media, along with the strong magnet to capture ferrous particles. My oil analysis have always come back fantastic using these oil filters. I know many on here say that an oil filter has little to nothing to do with wear metal counts on UOAs and that's fine. Obviously there are filters with better micron ratings (98% @ 20mic etc) but I'm ok with 35 absolute. Still better than a Wix XP and flows way better I'm pretty sure. I don't do extended OCIs so I'm not too concerned. I was tired of seeing high end filters such as Fram Ultra, Purolator PureOne and Boss, and Amsoil with ungodly amounts of excess glue everywhere and distorted pleats and poor crimps. Has anyone done a particle count with OAI? I'm thinking I should do some with the oil going thru the various K&P filters I'm running .
